Let’s Kill Internet Explorer 6

I just stumbled over Richards initiative on killing IE6… I extended the message to display and added it to my blog and our companies web site:


Here is the mark up:

<!--[if lte IE 6]>
  <div style="background-color: #f9f4ad; border: solid 1px #e0d200; padding: 8px; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center;">
    <p>You are using an <strong>old and unsupported version of Internet Explorer.</strong></p>
    <p>In order to get the most out of the web, you should get a <a href="http://www.microsoft.com/windows/downloads/ie/getitnow.mspx" style="color: #000; text-decoration: underline;" target="_blank">free update for Internet Explorer</a>,
       or consider trying <a href="http://mozilla.com/firefox/" style="color: #000; text-decoration: underline;" target="_blank">Mozilla Firefox</a>,
       <a href="http://www.opera.com/" style="color: #000; text-decoration: underline;" target="_blank">Opera</a> or
       <a href="http://www.google.com/chrome" style="color: #000; text-decoration: underline;" target="_blank">Google Chrome</a> instead. If you're using a work computer, you should contact your IT
       administrator. Check out <a href="http://www.quirksmode.org/upgrade.html" style="color: #000; text-decoration: underline;" target="_blank">this article</a> for more reasons why you should upgrade.</p>
